Does Scheherazade work on Mac with Wine?

Recommended Posts

I have been eyeing this game for a while and I really want to play it. However I only have a Mac. I know you are having some issues with making a Mac version, but I was wondering if anyone knew if Wine could run the game on a Mac? I don't want to buy the game and then have that not work.

 

Thanks in advance!

It looks like it only runs on windows

But there are several pages out there to show you how to duel boot macs

Here is one such page. I do not own a mac so I can not say how well any of it works. You would know better than I. http://kb.iu.edu/data/ahjj.html

 

If anything you could try out the demo on Wine or whatever you use.

 

Here is a link to the demo through Desura http://www.desura.com/games/1931-scheherazade-at-the-library-of-pergamum/download/3377

I think to remember that BCS only have a licence for the game engine they used for Scheherazade and so any porting depend if the maker of this engine make them work on MAC or Linux first.

Even then BCS would still need some Test Computer with this OS first to see if everything works, what means for the MAC that they would have to get new computer.

So unless someone can point to a place where BCS have anounced the port I would doubt they will do it.

Yes, unfortunately we have not ported the game to Mac or Linux. Such a thing is inherently possible using the Ren'Py engine, but we do not have the in-house means to support that yet. :(

 

There are unofficial ways to do it, of course, but we cannot troubleshoot them. :(
